The report about the Apple iPhone 5s topping the sales charts last month at all four major stateside carriers comes from Canaccord Genuity. And while the latter did not provide sales numbers, it did say that the Samsung Galaxy S4 was number two at times during the month, and occasionally dropped to third thanks to what Canaccord Genuity is calling "strong sales" of the Apple iPhone 5c. That would contradict some reports that had the candy coated iPhone missing out on the demand seen for its more debonair brother.
Not all handsets did well last month. The BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 had "very soft" sales in September, while the HTC One had a "very weak" month.
Canaccord now expects Apple to sell 52 million units globally in the fourth quarter with Samsung close behind.
